Featured at this museum are two interlocking towers that have been saved: Haley Tower and Spring Hill Tower. Once a common sight along US railroads, these towers are a dying breed, and precious few of them have been preserved.

In addition to the two towers the museum is home to a restored 1914 vintage PRR N6b cabin car, a 1890's Vandalia Railroad depot, a GE 45 ton switcher, WWII Pullman Troop Sleeper, Conrail N21 caboose and a Big Four railroad crossing watchman's shanty.

If you like the modern stuff be sure to check out our viewing platform, which puts you up close and personal with CSX trains as they pass WITHOUT trespassing on railroad property.
